New Lafayette Restaurant

The new Lafayette restaurant is called Shakebacks. Shakebacks' hours of operation will be interesting, opening at 10 p.m. and closing at 2 p.m. the next day.

Co-owner Terrance Jeffery tells that Shakebacks is aiming at catering to the "late-night crowd and early-morning crowd who don’t have many choices. We wanted somewhere where college kids can come late at night and don’t have to eat fast food."


There's also a little more information about Shakebacks posted to the Foodies of Lafayette Facebook group.

Foodies of Lafayette have posted a link to Shakebacks' where you can keep up with the latest information on the upcoming restaurant. You can check that out HERE.
